  • Great way to spend an hour or so if you are into the nautical history of the area. My husband is a sailor so he was enthralled. I enjoyed most of the exhibits then enjoyed a coffee whilst he lingered....  more »

  • Highly recommended.A great Spot to See in the Fremantle Harbour. Easy parking and available to the E Shed market nearby. Very educational museum on marine history in WA and illustrations of various kinds of ships including the Australia II, which won the Americas Cup in 1983 from the waters nearby. For an excess cost you may tour HMAS Ovens which is a retired Oberon class submarine.
  • Exhibits were really awesome. Particularly thought it was nice to have a Bazaar section which to show about the history sea merchants. Super immersive. Submarine tour was also pretty awesome to see what life for Sub-Mariners is like. Great to take kids!
